Not sure about colleges, but primary schools and high schools most
assuredly are. My wife directs gifted and special education for a
school system and 504 is very serious business. Whether anyone has
challenged the accessibility of a school web site, vis a vis Section
504, is something I don't know, but there would be good precedent for
such an action, in my opinion.
